Juan Sebastián Aguilar

Juan Sebastián Aguilar is a Colombian-born Berlin-based guitarist, composer and programmer. A talented guitarist and ingenious coder, Juan Sebastián’s work moves effortlessly between instrumental experimental music, traditional songwriting and coding. In 2020, in response to pandemic restrictions, Juan co-wrote and co-produced “Atrapada” by Arrabalero ft. Andrés Gualdrón, a song entirely recorded with mobile phones in remote collaborations between Colombia, Malta and Germany, which received the IDARTES award for Musical Innovation. Interested in “exploring human relationships mediated by the body, musical instruments and computers,” Juan is currently developing a project which facilitates long distance collaborations between underserved musicians in Bogotá and Berlin.
